Weekend Recap

This weekend was of course another great one!  I am feeling tired back at work today though...I think its also because its very quiet in the office.  Friday we went to Corey's parents for dinner which was great to see them!  Saturday my Mom and I helped out at Spiritual DNA at our church.  Its an all day thing where you take multiple tests prior to the day to discover you strengths and really just the way God made you!  Its truly inspiring and really leaves you feeling connected to God and those who sit at your table with you.

I made these Pumpkin Scones when I got home.  I think next time I would add more pumpkin puree and try a cream cheese glaze.  Sunday we went to church, helped my sister move into her new apartment, and then watched the Colts win :)

Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Frosting

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 7 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fresh nutmeg, grated
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 6 tbsp unsalted cold butter, chopped
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 4 tbsp half and half (divided)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a parchment paper (Next time I would grease the pan).
Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Use a pastry blender to cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.
In another bowl, whisk the pumpkin, 3 tablespoons of half and half, the egg, and vanilla together. Slowly add the dry mixture and mix until just combined. Don't over mix the batter.
Form a ball and place on a lightly floured surface. Flatten the ball into a rectangle about 1 inch thick. Cut the rectangle into four squares then cut each square diagonally in half to form a triangle.
Place the triangles onto the baking sheet. Brush the top of each scone with the last tablespoon of half and half.
Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Let them cool on a wire rack.

Spiced Glaze:
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp fresh nutmeg, grated
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
Mix all of the ingredients together with a whisk. Once the scones have cooled a bit, drizzle each scone with the glaze then serve immediately. Enjoy.
Have a nice Monday!
